Met Éireann issues three new weather warnings as Ireland braces itself for Storm Gareth

Met Éireann has issued a Status Orange weather warning ahead of Storm Gareth, with gusts of up to 130km/h forecast along the west and northwest of the country.

Storm Gareth will bring gusts of up to 60 mph across Northern Ireland during for the evening rush hour tomorrow. Winds will ease gradually here through Wednesday morning.

These gusts will become even stronger winds as we move into the next week, with a risk of gale force winds returning to north-western coastal fringes of the United Kingdom on Tuesday. The showers will die out and it will be dry and bright for a time today.

Temperatures are not likely to get much above 10 or 11C - but with the wind chill, this could feel more like 6 to 8C.

The heavy rain is expected to arrive in Penzance at around 7pm this evening, easing off around 11pm, as it sweeps eastwards - arriving in Plymouth at around 9pm.

As well as strong winds, Gareth is also expected to bring heavy rain overnight on Monday and Tuesday.

A yellow weather warning has been issued for severe gale force winds.

There is also the very real possibility for power cuts throughout and people are being warned to take extreme care if out and about.

Weather warnings for snow and ice are in place across western Scotland and Northern Ireland until 11am, while the wintry weather is also set to cause disruption across the Black Country, Staffordshire and Shropshire.

As the weather becomes warmer in the afternoon, the snow and sleet with transform over to rain.
